Public transportation is no existent in Gusau, so students and teachers must either walk or be driven to school by parents, since many parents or teachers don’t own cars, this is not an option for most students. Another possibility is to hail one of the many scooters that carry passengers or one of the three-wheeled motorized taxis (aka Kekes) that are ubiquitous in every Nigerian city. These modes of transportation are somewhat risky, especially the Keke, There are swarms of Kekes in most Nigerian cities. These yellow, noisy and slightly dangerous, auto rickshaws and their drivers are sometimes known as “the wild bunch”.
To help alleviate this problem for our students and teachers, AEP has bought two buses for Graceland International School.
Our partners have greatly appreciated these buses.
